Ore Seam, Ytterby Mine, Sweden

 
Mr Peter Oakley, Anthropology

Analyses of the material found in veins in the Ytterby quartz mine eventually led to the identification of 8 elements: Yttrium, Ytterbium, Terbium, Erbium, Thulium, Gadolinium, Scandium and Holmium. Today the abandoned mine is filled in, but at its mouth veins of dark ore running through the quartz are still visible.
